We're currently looking at a future home purchase that is "comtemporary" 1962 post and beam construction. It looks as if the interior ceilings are just tongue and groove with the roofing material laid directly on it. (Currently shingles) I would like to change this to a metal roof but need to know if there is any external (under roof material but over the current t&g wood) insulation possibilities that can be added on the exterior during the new roofing process? If so, how does it work and how can I calculate total cost? Thanks, Mike Giles

Yes, in some cases this can be done but you need to think about ventilation as well. I really feel that, because this is a complex issue which can vary based upon what product you're installing, as well as on the roof pitch, you need to choose some products you like from this website and contact their manufacturers to ask them these things directly.
